Looking up the broken corner of Porter's Pout, lef...

Description 

This is a good seldom done climb. A must do if you find yourself climbing classics on the eastern side of Reed's. If you like hand jams, there are a few on this line. Don't be turned away by the broken and blocky appearance of this line.

Location 

This climb shares chains with Ejesta. Continue past the start of Ejesta until you reach a right facing corner with munge covered terraces at the bottom. It sits directly below the giant 5.11 roof crack known as Sylvester's Meow.

This pitch can also be top roped from the chains at the top of Ejesta, but a 70m rope would be required. Even with a 70m, the belay will be off of narrow tarraces.

Protection 

Gear to 3 inches. Bring one extra 2-2.5 inch pieces.
